Jimmy Rollins traded to Dodgers

Rollins down the river.

Jimmy Rollins has been traded to the Los Angeles Dodgers, ending his 15-year stint with the Philadelphia Phillies, sources told ESPN’s Buster Olney.

Jimmy Rollins, who has one year remaining on his contract, could provide the Dodgers with a short-term solution at shortstop until top prospect Corey Seager is ready for the majors.

It is unclear what Philadelphia acquired in exchange for the 36-year-old Rollins, a three-time All-Star shortstop who won the National League MVP in 2007.

The trade marks the end of Rollins’ historic run in Philadelphia, where he spent his entire career. Rollins is the franchise’s all-time leader in hits, at-bats and doubles, and was one of the key contributors to the Phillies’ World Series championship run in 2008.

The Dodgers had been seeking a veteran shortstop to replace Hanley Ramirez, who signed as a free agent last month with the Boston Red Sox, and bridge the gap until their top position prospect, Corey Seager, is ready.
